Hi Martin,

Alas, we don't have vector versions of the images.  We originally did
all of the book's diagrams in Powerpoint (which we *do* have, buried
in the repository's history somewhere).  When O'Reilly published the
book, they had a professional artist rerender them in Freehand and
Photoshop.  O'Reilly was kind enough to give us back .jpg's of the
nice-looking diagrams to put online, but not the original vector
